In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Thursday night game plan:

8 p.m.

Watch: The Vampire Diaries (The CW): When we return to Mystic Falls for season 6, it’s going to be nothing like the Mystic falls we’re used to, with both Damon and Bonnie long gone and vampires banned from town. Premieres Oct. 2.

DVR: Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): Season 11 kicks off with what’s bound to be a lot of drama, as Meredith and Derek are debating a move to D.C., Callie and Arizona have a 50/50 chance of staying together, and there’s a new head of cardio who just happens to be Mer’s sister and the daughter Ellis Grey gave up for adoption.

 

9 p.m.

Watch: Scandal (ABC): Where in God’s name is Olivia Pope? That’s the question on everyone’s mind heading into tonight’s season 4 premiere, which picks up after the fixer fled D.C. for what seems to be a tropical locale with no shortage of wine.

DVR: Gracepoint (Fox): The 10-episode series follows a detective duo (Anna Gunn and David Tennant) and their investigation into the murder of a young boy in a small town. Premieres Oct. 2.

10 p.m.

Watch: How to Get Away With Murder (ABC): The series premiere of Shonda Rhimes’ latest offering, which stars Viola Davis as criminal defense professor Annalise Keating who teaches a class called, you guessed it, “How to Get Away With Murder.”

DVR: Parenthood (NBC): We know there’s a “big event” in store for the Bravermans in the season 6 premiere — one that will probably make you shed a tear or two.
